In a dangerous industry, a company’s safety record is a good measure of how well it does its job. Which makes us proud to announce that Quincy Farm Products has gone two years without an accident.
What makes this safety record important to our customers is that it shows a well-managed plant in operation. And a well-run plant is also one that keeps costs low and quality high.
“As a producer and now as a part of the Quincy Farm Products team, I’ve seen the importance of safe operations. Farming and waste recycling are both dangerous businesses, “ said Pat Hildebrand, QFP Operations Supervisor. “And unless you keep a close watch on things, someone is going to get hurt – badly.”
For our customers this means that we are controlling costs – on insurance and health care – that we don’t have to pass along to them. Just as importantly, we’re keep an eye on all aspects of the business.
That means that we maintain a clean operation and monitor our incoming materials and outgoing products constantly. This vigilance is especially important with FSMA and other regulations governing feed safety and accountability.
“By having a culture of safety at our plant, we’re also creating a culture of excellence,” Jerrod Evans, General Manager of Quincy Farm Products said. “It’s impossible to maintain a safe working environment without also maintaining an efficient and productive workforce.”
An article on FleetOwner.com spoke to this in a different context: “Safety is not just the right thing to do; it’s a bottom line business proposition,” he stressed. “We’re talking about a great return in terms of dollars and cents beyond just your insurance premium costs,” said Brian Fielkow, CEO of Jetco Delivery.
Interested in seeing us “walk the talk” on safety and efficiency? Give us a call and we’ll be happy to arrange a plant tour. This will also give you the chance to see the high quality of the food waste that we use to make our products and the dedication of the folks making our livestock feed and ingredients.
